Rolling Through the Bay

September 12, 2011

Over 100,000 toothpicks

Art teachers include sculpture in their curriculum using a variety of medium. This link will take you to a vimeo that documents a model of the entire city of San Francisco made out of over 100,000 toothpicks.  Making it very interesting is the artist, Scott Weaver, who narrates as the camera moves around the artwork. He includes personal stories about his family. You won’t want to miss this and in fact I suggest you share it with your students.  Click on the link below to see Rolling Through the Bay which took Scott Weaver 35 years to create.
